The view down the Wisconsin River from Cactus Bluff in Ferry Bluff State Natural Area. Millions of years ago this valley was carved to a depth of over 600 feet by an ancient river. The last major glaciation deposited as much as 300 feet of sand and gravel, resulting in the broad floodplain and terraces that characterize the Lower Wisconsin River valley today.
